What you might not know...
Is that Nutrilite was the precursor to a little company called... Amway!
"Carl Rehnborg's food supplement business, which began as the California Vitamin Corporation, changed its name to Nutrilite Products in 1939 when it moved to larger quarters."
"According to Federal District Court records, significant out-of-state distribution of Nutrilite supplements began in 1945 when a company operated by Lee S. Mytinger and William S. Casselberry became exclusive national distributor. Rehnborg acted as 'scientific advisor' in the distributional scheme."
All three of these men actually appear in this film - incredible!
"After Mytinger and Casselberry, Inc., was asked by the Government to show cause why a criminal proceeding for misbranding should not be started, the booklet was revised."
"Amway's founders Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel were friends who became Nutrilite distributors after high school graduation. They were extremely successful and built a sales organization with over 2,000 distributors."
"Fearing that Nutrilite Products might collapse, they formed a new company, the American Way Association, later renamed Amway."
This well produced film is a priceless treasure for it's historical value alone!
